of katrina and we all know what happened on katrina. >> steve: we certainly do. it will be interesting tonight will the moderator of the presidential debate will ask mr. romney about the 47 comment. will they ask about this particular video that shows then senator obama showing that the neglect of new orleans was racial. >> down in new orleans, where they still have not rebuilt 20 months later. there is a federal law when you get reconstruction money from the federal government called the staford act and when you get federal matter you have to give a 10 percent match from the local government. when 9/11 happened in new york city, they waived the staford act. they said this is too serious of a problem and we can't expect new york city to lebuild on its own. forget that dollar. that was the right thing to do. what is happening down in new orleans? where is your dollar? where is your staford act money? it makes no sense. trust me, the bullet hasn't been taken out. it tells me that the people down in new orleans doesn't care as much. >> steve: you can see it in the entirity in the daily ca
victims of hurricane katrina. cnn reported the event at the time, but the conservative website called "daily caller" is out with the full version of the speech, saying it's an exclusive videotape. we did cover this when it happened. that conservative website is arguing that it is evidence of president obama, then senator obama, whipping up race hatred. for more on this story and how it's -- how did this 5-year-old tape that did get mainstream media coverage end up resurfacing now as some sort of exclusive showing something that we apparently had all never seen before? >> well, ashleigh, it's a political year. this tape plays very well to the republican base. it's being billed on the right as obama's other race speech, so at a time when some suggest a republican challenger doesn't seem to be getting much traction, the one thing we know what works is dredging up anti-obama sentiments to get the base fired up. now, yes, this is clearly old news. it was well covered five years ago. the other thing that a democratic and a republican strategist have both pointed out to me is as an opportuni
among other things of the government's response to hurricane katrina. >> when hurricane andrew struck in florida, people said, look at this devastation. we don't expect you to come up with your own money. here. here's the money to rebuild. we're not going to wait for you to scratch it together. because you're part of the american family. what's happening down in new orleans? where's your dollar? where's your stafford act money? it makes no sense. it tells me the bullet hasn't been taken out. it tells me that somehow the people down in new orleans, they don't care about as much. >> so at the same time yesterday, there was another video posted on the huffington post showing congressman paul ryan speaking in november of 2011 about ten months ago about a moral tipping point in the united states. that was six months before mitt romney's 47% remarks. >> before too long, we could become a society we were never, ever intended to be. we could become a society where the net majority of americans are takers, not makers. today, 70% of americans get more benefits from the federal government in dol
-read opinion page. katrina vanden heuvel in "the washington post" writes this. elizabeth warren, the people's champion. >> i'm sorry, go ahead. go ahead. no, it's all right. i was just thinking about a joke i heard yesterday. go ahead. >> throughout the campaign, mark halperin, warren has delivered an unabashed populist message. she first made the common-sense case that no one succeeded alone. that successful businesspeople depend on what we've built together, an educated work force, roads and transport to deliver their products, a rule of law vital to working markets. this isn't a radical notion, but when adopted and badly phrased by president obama, it sparked the frenzied republican "we built it" campaign. warren will focus on the core issues and ask massachusetts voters to decide who is on their side. and if she wins, she'll not only lead a new generation of progressive reformers into the senate, but also begin to teach democrats how to fight for working people once more." mark? >> vanden heuvel, not ratner, on that. >> not ratner. >> we don't have ratner here to dispute. >> just to gam
